2010 Women's World Chess Championship

The big one is underway and Round 1 half-finished  Since I can't get my desk top to work properly I can't do a Chess Femme News page in html, so I'll have to report results and what not here.  It's not that there is a lack of news, but what Chess Femme News does is gather it all together in one spot that will be accessible as long as I stay online, months and years after the official site disappears.  Makes it easy for people who want to look back for whatever reason.
Here are the R1 results:

Games ended in draws go to rapid chess play-offs - later today I think --

USA's WGM Camille Baginskaite is out of the tournament after falling behind the white pieces to China's WGM Ruan Lufei, who outranks her by about 150 points.  So, not unexpected.  But I'm sorry to see one of our two players go.  The only one left now is IM Anna Zatonskih, who with the black pieces defeated IM Main Lomineishvili of Georgia (the Georgian players are powerhouses and always dangerous, whatever their ELO rating).  GO ANNA!

The Week in Chess Round 1, includes videos from Europe Echecs which didn't play very well for me, lots of stops and starts, despite being run on my trusty Toshiba laptop.  Hmm...

Official Website Round 1 - By the way, thanks for putting up a different icon that wasn't an imitation of Goddesschess' 11 year old icon :)  Your new icon is lovely.
